Our Spirituality

Nano Nagle drew her strength from prayer, contemplation, and communion with the Divine, in order to pursue service for those on the margins.

We are called to awaken to the Spirit of God present and active in all that exists, to a Spirituality of Being in Communion, in order to participate in the universal mission of Jesus Christ. We emulate Nano in this by the inclusion of Gospel reflections, spiritual activities, and contemplative dialogue to bring about transformation. This gives life to the charism of Nano … “deeds not words.”
